Story"I was sitting in front of the TV, tired after a long and exhausting day.
Slowly, I began to doze off, sat in my armchair, in the centre of my room.
Sounds and sensations began to merge...the TV...the house...but I could hear footsteps!
Someone was at the front door. I heard a scrape, and someone running away....
BOOOM!!! The door was blasted off it's hinges, and landed right on top of me, almost as if they had seen through the wall and looked at where I was.
I knew well who they were. Gone are the days where we only wondered if there was life outside of our solar system.
We got used to them hanging around us.
We got a new civilisation, a new life and new friends.
In spite of that, I could never get rid of the feeling, that one day, they would take ME, like the others they had taken before. Sure, there was no proof, but I really did not want to get on that list "vanished without a trace".
They tried to lay me flat on the floor, but I bagan to struggle, which ended when I received a sickening hit on my head.....
....I regained my conciousness in a car.
Luckily, my abductors didn't realise that I was awake. I bagan to shout and kick, I tried to hit them, but I was terrified. As I tried to throttle the driver, he lost control, and the car broke through the barriers, and to my horror, into a deep chasm. I instantly regretted what I did, and realised, that in seconds, I would be dead.
The thought went through my mind, that if I had not struggled, I could have lived for a while, albeit on a distant planet....
....but my thoughts were broken, because, ridiculous as it may sound, the car turned into a flying ship, complete with dazzling light and a roaring engine. We headed outwards and on, into space.
The only thing that I could remember, is that we were still fighting heavily as we started to land....
.....it was terrible. The crash, the impact, splinters, noise, screams, a shattering sound, and everything getting smashed up. I crawled out of the wreckage, and saw that there was some kind of strange liquid, bleeding out of the aliens, a very foul smelling disgusting liquid.
I noticed a device what looked like a communicator, which made odd sounds, chirping, all an urecognisable cacophany of sound.
I couldn't take the stress, I fainted.....
....hours, days may have passed, then something grabbed the shipwreck, lifted it up, with me still on board, and took it to a hideously disgusting place. What looked like a dumping ground.
Maybe they thought I was dead, and they threw me out like rag doll, in the middle of dirt, waste and litter. I was an Escapee - was I the only one?
That was the beginning, as I remember."
